Archives of the former Croatian Chancellery of Order
Maybe a short will be useful; few years ago in Belgrade a vast numbers of documents from former Croatian Chancellery of orders were thrown into dump. (Don’t ask me how it’s possible) Fortunately some people who dig on the dump and searching for useful things had slight feeling that bunch of old document might be sold for few Euros. And so I was able to make a collection of about 1000 documents related to Croatian decorations which were bestowed to German officers.
Many of these award announcements were also published in Hrvatski narod, the wartime Croatian daily with offices in Zagreb.

Poglavnik and his clique must have been the fair-haired boys of the German officers in Croatia by war's end, because there's nothing German officers liked more than decorations! Even before good-looking young girls and women! Hand one a decoration and he was your friend for life.

Outstanding work Bovec! It’s almost hard to believe the documents were dumped in the trash, but as an archivist I hear of this often. Indeed, several collections in the archive where I work were “rescued” from the trash.

Thanks again for your list and rescuing valuable documents!

Best regards,
Shawn

Hi all,

I'm glad you like my list.

Concerning Friedrich Paulus, to my list he received only one award. It's Iron Trefoil with Oak branches Class I. Below is his awarding document (Decree), It's interesting that document has no description of merits. Usually there are at least sentence or two. Only Paulus' title is stated: "His excelency General der Panzertruppen PAULUS Commander of 6th Army". Award was made on 1.1.1943. here is the scan of the document

Image

Some numbers about Iron Trefoils; alltogather about 2300 awards were made. Last for which I know was made on April 18, 1945 with sequential number 2279. From this number, 966 awards went to Croat officers, rest to other axis forces where wast majority went to Germans.

Croats received only 1 order of ZTI with oak leaves (führer Ante Pavelic), 2 orders of ZTI, one went to Commander in Chief marschal Slavko Kvaternik (so we can consider these two more political awards).
Germans received, to my estimation much more, maybe 50 of ZTI (with and without Oak Branches). I have data for 18 officers (even as low rank as hauptmann received this prestigious award) and there are many German generals who are stated in my list but I don't know (yet) what kind of decoration they got.

In few days I'll try to do similar for Zvinimir's Order,

best regards, Pavel

Hi all,
I'm posting the list with data I have about Order of Zvonimir's Crown;
all togather it was awarded about 7500 orders (on April 20, 1945 last numbered I know about is 7449)
Out of that 1376 Zvonimirs went to Croat recipients.

Same for data; if there is number of the Decree; ZV-7436; means I was able to see the documents;
only Class or date; evidence from photograph or text

Some comments about abreviations:
S: Swords E: Oak leaves, St: Star GK: Grand Cross
ZVIESt : Order of Zvonimir Class I with Oak leaves & with Star
ZVIIIS : Order of Zvonimir Class III with Swords

Paulus and Order of Zvonimir's Crown - NEW FACTS

A question asked from Crataphilles last week was clarified today;
I've got an interesting book (in English), Croatian Legion - 369th Reinforced (Croat) IR on Eastern front,
almost 600 pages; thousands of interedsting photos; wormly recommended

a large chapter is about visit of Pavelich to 6th Army HQ on Eastern Front on 24th September 1942,
at this time Pavelich had decorated generals von Paulus, von Weichs and von Sodenstern (Chieff of staff of Heeresgruppe B) with Grand Cross of King Zvominir's Crown with Swords;
there are dozen photos in the book showing all three generals wearing their newly received decorations; but only stars and no sashes. As well generalvon Seydlitz-Kurzbach, CO of 11th Armekorps received the same award;
lower awards (un0oftunately nt specified which) were bestowed to von Seydlitz Chieff of Staff Oberst Clausius; general Sanne and his chieff of staff major Henkel and other 12 officers of 6th Army.

It seems my list will be constantly updated..
best regards, pavel

Neidholdt is wearing both Croatian Iron Trefoil & King Zvonimir Crown (don't know what grade though)! Also unidentified German officer at the back with King Zvonimir Crown in his neck...

Dear Alirafikkhan,
great pics indeed; especially that of general Neidthold with Iron Trefoil & Order of Zvonimir arround his neck.
I have to obtain this book.

Just a remark, on picture with general Neidthold is not War minister Vokic, but Prime minister Nikola Mandic (he was prime minister from 2.9.1943 till end of the war. As well man has a political uniform, not Ustasha one (as Vokic was Ustasha general)

I've found some more German officers with Iron trefoil & Order of Zvonimir. No big names this time...
